This is the first episode in which Kenny does not die.
Despite the fact that Stan is Catholic, he recites the verse at the beginning of the episode from the King James version of the bible. The King James bible is used by Protestants.
This episode was the debut for Three popular South Park songs including "Mr. Hankey, the Christmas Poo", "Kyle's Mom is a Stupid **** and "The Lonely Jew on Christmas", which are all repeated in later episodes.
Mr Mackey calls Kyle a "Fecophiliac" for his apparent obsession for feces. The correct term is a coprophiliac.
This episode contains the series first ever live action footage, the Mr. Hankey play-set. This footage was played like a commercial, and was played after the show went to a commercial break, and intended to look real but was in fact a part of the show. This led the tradition of act break "commercials" in South Park being live action. Other episodes that do this include "Towelie," "Cherokee Hair Tampons," "Chinpokomon," and "Free Hat."
After the fight broke out and everyone saw Mr.Hankey, you can see in the crowd Token with a white head,black hands and to belive it he is wearing his "T" t-shirt.
Mrs. Broflovski incorrectly identifies Kyle's part in the Nativity as "Joseph of Arimethea." Kyle was playing Joseph, father of Jesus, (also known as Saint Joseph, Joseph the Betrothed, and Joseph of Nazareth), not Joseph of Arimathea. The two Josephs are different; Joseph, father of Jesus, is well known; Joseph of Arimathea secured the body of Jesus after the crucifixion and donated a tomb for burial prior to the resurrection.
This episode was Mr. Mackey's debut to the viewers of South Park; however, the order shows that "Damien" was the episode where his character was first created.
The spelling on Mr. Mackey's office wall changes.
While Kenny is up on the ladder, there is a view of the childrens heads later on-- Kenny's orange hoodie can be seen. But then shortly after, it show's Kenny climbing back down off the ladder.
Cartman: How bout we sing, "Kyle's Mom is a Stupid Bitch," in D-minor?
Kyle: I told you not to call my mom a bitch Cartman!
(Talking about Kyle's mom)
Cartman: Oh, boy! Superbitch is at it again!
Stan: Hey come on guys. We have to go to the mall and tell Santa Claus what we want for Christmas.
Cartman: Yeah. We'll see you later, Kyle. Guess there's no reason for you to come, since you don't get Christmas presents.
Kyle: No, but I get Channukah presents for eight days.
Cartman: Too bad it's usually a dreidel or something lame like that.
Cartman: Oh dude! Kyle's mom is here to ruin Christmas!
Kyle: Shut up, fat boy!
Cartman: I'm not fat, I'm festively plump.
Sheila: How dare you include the Nativity in a school play? Don't you realize my son is Jewish?!
Mr. Garrison: …So?
Sheila: So what makes you think he should play Joseph of Arimathea?
Mr. Garrison: Because it's Christmas?
Kyle: It's probably just another stupid dre…
(When Kyle shows the boys the turd in the box.)
Stan: Dude. Sick!
Cartman: Is this some kind of Jewish tradition?
Cartman: Alright, that does it. Screw you guys, I'm going home. Talking poo is where I draw the line.
Sheila: You're upsetting the Jewish community!
Mr. Garrison: You are the Jewish community!
Mayor McDaniels: Are there any questions?
(Mr. Garrison raises hand)
Mayor McDaniels: Yes, Mr. Garrison?
Mr. Garrison: Can we get rid of all the Mexicans?
Mayor McDaniels: (rolling eyes) No, Mr. Garrison, we cannot get rid of all the Mexicans.
Mr. Garrison: Rats…
Mr. Garrison: It's not my fault you're raising him Pagan.
Mr. Garrison: Whatever.
Chef: Say, where's Kyle?
Stan: We committed him?
Cartman: Cause he kept seeing this brown piece of Christmas Poo everywhere that he went.
Chef: Christmas Poo? You mean Mr. Hankey, right?
Stan: Uh oh.
Mr. Mackey: So try to stay positive, stay away from drugs and alcohol, and in the meantime, I'm gonna put you on a heavy regiment of Prozac. (sees Mr. Hankey in his coffee cup) Ewww! Oh my God, you sick little monkey!
Mr. Mackey: Right now, you're nuttier than Chinese chicken salad, mmmkay. I mean, you're one screwed up little kid, do you understand?
Stan: You guys, I'm getting that John Elway football helmet for Christmas.
Cartman: How do you know?
Stan: 'Cause I looked in my parents' closet last night.
Cartman: Yeah, well I sneaked around my mum's closet too and saw what I'm getting. The Ultravibe Pleasure 2000.
Stan: What's that?
Cartman: I don't know but it sounds pretty sweet.
The Lonely Jew on Christmas Lyrics:
It's hard to be a Jew, on Christmas.
My friends won't let me join in any games.
And I can't sing Christmas Carols or decorate a Christmas Tree.
Or leave water out for Rudolf 'cause there's something wrong with me.
My people don't believe in Jesus Christ divinity.
I'm a Jew. a lonely Jew, on Christmas.
Hanukkah is nice but why is it
That Santa passes over my house every year?
And instead of eating ham I have to eat kosher latkes
Instead of Silent Night I'm singing
Hoo Hact Toh Gaveesh
And what the f**k is up with lighting all these
F**king candles tell me please?!
I'm a Jew. A lonely Jew.
I'd be merry, but I'm Hebrew,
Kyle: Dreidel dreidel dreidel,
I made you out of clay,
Dreidel dreidel dreidel,
With dreidel I shall play.
SECOND VERSE SAME AS THE FIRST!
Dreidel, dreidel, dreidel…
Kyle: You know, (sings)
Mr. Hanky the Christmas Poo,
He loves me, I love-
Cartman: (cuts in) Excuse me, but Kyle is a very disturbed little boy.
Kyle: Officer Barbrady!
Officer Barbrady: What?
Kyle: Is it illegal for Jewish people to eat Christmas snow?
Officer Barbrady: Yes.
Kyle: You got the best balls in the world Chef.
Chef: Damn straight.
Stan: We want to commit our friend, Kyle, please.
Kyle: I'm a clinically depressed fecalpheliac on Prozac.
Nurse: Any allergies?
(They drag Kyle off)
Cartman: Bye, Kyle! Happy Hanukkah!
Commercial Voice: Mr. Hanky playset comes with everything seen hee-ah!
Kyle: You'll be sorry when you see me riding on Santa's sleigh with Mr. Hanky!
Cartman: You're not gonna ride on Santa's sleigh, 'cause you're a Jew, KYLE!
Mr. Mackey: Stan, you need to do something about your friend! Mmkay. Get him out of here before he hurts somebody! Mmkay.
Kyle: (to his poo) Dance! Dance! Dance damn you!
Mr. Hankey, The Christmas Poo Lyrics:
Mr. Hankey, the Christmas Poo.
He loves me, I love you.
Therefore, vicariously, he love you.
Even if your a Jew.
Sometimes he's corny.
Sometimes he's nutty.
He can be brown, or greenish-brown,
But if you eat fiber on Christmas Eve he might come to your town.
Mr. Hankey, the Christmas Poo...
Stan: I've got this weird feeling.
(everyone looks at Kenny)
Stan: I feel like something's missing.
Cartman: Yeah, me too.
Kyle: What could it be?
Kenny: Ha, ha, ha!!
(credits say "The End")
After this episode aired, John Kricfalusi, of Ren and Stimpy fame, accused Stone and Parker of ripping off a character from his George Liquor flash cartoons nammed "Nutty, the Friendly Dump". However, the court ruled out the case as "too ridiculous". Ironically, the episode actually featured a reference to Ren and Stimpy when Mr. Mackey calls Kyle a "sick little monkey".
During the pre-episode intro on the DVD and video this episode was on, Trey Parker explained that Mr. Mackey was inspired by the school counselor he had in junior high.
According to "Goin Down To South Park", Mr. Hankey was inspired by an event which happened with Trey Parker. When Trey was a kid, he had the habit of not flushing the toilet, because of this, Trey's dad told him that if he didn't flush the toilet, Mr. Hankey would come out and eat him.
During a spring 2002 rerun cycle, this was named by Comedy Central as the 4th most "notorious" episode of the series.
One Froggy Evening:
Many of the plot devices surrounding Mr. Hankey (him being carried around in a box, his coming to life in the presence of only Kyle and subsequent inactivity in the presence of others to the point that Kyle eventually is forced to enter an asylum) are very similar to those surrounding Michigan J. Frog in the classic animated short One Froggy Evening.
Ren and Stimpy:
During the scene where Mr. Mackey finds a turd in his coffee he calls Kyle a "sick little monkey". This is an insult which is used in the animated comedy Ren and Stimpy.
A Charlie Brown Christmas:
The episode opens with Stan arriving on the stage and reciting the story of the birth of Jesus from the Gospel of Luke, this is very similar to what Linus did in the famous "A Charlie Brown Christmas" special. The snowflake-eating scene is also a reference from Peanuts.
Mr. Potato Head:
The Mr. Hankey Playset is very similar to Mr. Potato Head. Utilizing eye, nose, lip, and arm pieces, you create your own play toy.
King Kamehameha was referenced in Cartman's song about Kyle's mother was the greatest of the Hawaiian kings.
The design of Mr. Hankey along with his family as seen in "A Very Crappy Christmas," is based on the look of classic Disney star, Mickey Mouse, especially in the arms, eyes, and voice.
